I'm also amazed that they still use pagers.

Really?

I suppose it would cost billions to upgrade and change the procedure for the new millennium which isn't so fan dangled new any more.
Despite most doctors carrying smartphones too, they still primarily use pagers for their emergency messages. Not because it would cost more to upgrade the system and procedures, but because paging networks are more reliable for emergency messages and during emergencies that can disable cell service, have a more powerful signal, and reach everyone being paged simultaneously.
